Default Tele for my Canon 400D

Dear all,

I am new here and would appreciate your advice on the following topic. Shortly I have bought a Canon 400D and a EF-S 17-85mm 1:4-5.6 IS USM. Now I am thinking of buying a tele to (for the moment) complete the set. I am willing to pay the money necessary to get something good, without overpaying. What would you recommend? I was looking at the Canon EF 70-200mm 1:4L IS USM but am not sure whether that is the best choice...

Thank you in advance
Cristina

Hello Cristina,
sounds like a good choice, it's a good quality lens and a good advantage against f/2.8 versions is that it is lighter. With the canon 1.6 multiplicator, the long end will be equivalent 320mm.

I have the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS lens and find it brilliant. Add to that a 2x extender, and you can cover a large range. A wonderful combination.

Just make sure that you hold/carry the lens properly on your 400D body.

He's talking about the F4L IS, not the F2.8L IS, which costs roughly 700 euro's more..

I'm a Pentax owner, but I read very often (other forums) that this F4L IS is one of the sharpest lenses available, taking it's weigth (0,5x 2.8L IS) and price (advanvantages over the 2.8L IS) in consideration, I think it's a great buy!

Bonjour,
Le meilleur est aujourd'hui le 70-300 IS USM. Excellent piqué et de bons résultats grâce au stabilisateur.
Amicalement
Jean-Luc
